Summer Interning at Byteflies: Data Science

Interested in an internship at Byteflies? Contact us! Here at Byteflies we are always on the lookout for excellent summer internship candidates. Last summer, we had the pleasure of hosting Tomas Fiers in the Signal Processing & Data Science team. He validated the signal quality of Byteflies IMU sensors against gold-standard recordings obtained in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), and ran some activity classification experiments. Read on for his excellent report!

Why value-based healthcare models work

Fostering positive-sum competition to breathe life back into the healthcare ecosystem Fee-for-service models are familiar to all of us. In healthcare, we are generally charged for every procedure that a doctor or clinician performs, even if it doesn’t have a positive outcome. Focused entirely on the here and now and characterized by higher costs, fewer services, errors and quality differences, this model is facing plenty of scrutiny as we move toward more integrative, personalized care.

The Byteflies Sensor Dot: a miniature vital signs lab

Capable of accurately measuring 5 signals (with more on the way), the tiny Byteflies Sensor Dot offers a software/hardware platform for the development of diverse wearable health applications that rely on continuous physiologic monitoring. With the launch of the Sensor Dot, a brand-new arsenal of powerful, clinically relevant tools becomes available to medical and pharma companies for the first time.

Google Launchpad Studio program has lift-off!

The kick-off week for the first edition of the Google Launchpad Studio program in San Francisco is officially over, but we're only getting started! In case you missed the original announcement, Byteflies is one of four startups selected to participate in Launchpad Studio, a Google acceleration program for applied machine learning.

Byteflies works with Google to bring Machine Learning to its Wearable Health Platform

San Francisco/Antwerp, November 1, 2017 – Byteflies, the Belgian-American wearable health startup, was selected to join the Google Launchpad Studio program. After launching their wearable health Exploration Kit last month, the company will work together with Google to generate medical insights from the raw sensor data.

Byteflies launches wearable health Exploration Kit

San Francisco, Calif./Antwerp, Belgium, October 11, 2017 – Byteflies, a Belgian-American wearable health start-up, launches the Byteflies Exploration Kit. The kit features a set of five programmable high-precision Sensor Dots that continuously and remotely monitor any vital sign. Data gathered through the wearable sensors then connect to Byteflies’ data processing platform.

We are honoured to be nominated by Belcham as one of the 3 companies to become the 'most promising company of the year'. With Showpad being the previous winner and Sparkcentral and Datacamp being the other nominees, we are in great company for this prestigious award.

Byteflies Wearable Device Survey

We asked people who visited our website or conference booth about synchronization of multiple physiologic signals, the type of data they would like to access and -last but not least- which physiologic sensors were most important to them.

Belgian-American start-up Byteflies develops wearable technology for UCB collaboration project

San Francisco, Calif., August 16, 2017 – Byteflies, the Belgian-American start-up company, and aspirational leader in wearable health solutions, is partnering with the biopharmaceutical company UCB to monitor difficult to measure seizures experienced by people with epilepsy.

SeizeIT wearable seizure detection equipment aims to give epilepsy patients more control over their daily lives

Technological innovation is at the forefront of a drive towards individualization of care in epilepsy – an integral element in improving the experience of people with epilepsy and hopefully improving their day to day lives.
